Never saw one of those, but in France there is-was a cheap watch and clock company called Corvair. I was told when visiting over there that they were kinds like Timex here. I could see possibly other products they could have represented. Corventure Dave

Like Jim mentioned, the simple thumb screw battery disconnect on the negative post of the battery is a good idea in my opinion. I have this on both my FC's that do not get driven daily. This will not correct any parasitic load problem in the system, but eliminates any battery draw when parked. A friend with the factory Monza clock had just this issue when he hadn't driven the car for

I abandoned FB years ago because it was just too annoying! Had to delete too much garbage and wasn't worth my time. My only regret is all of the different clubs and organizations who extensively use it to communicate!! Too bad for them! And then there is Linkedin. They won't accept my password and fail to let me reset it. So Phhhhht to them also! Corventure Dave

I believe Craig is right. However my Greenbrier is a 1964 and the Rampside a 1962. I have only had one 65 FC in the family, some 25 years ago,and unfortunately the ignition switch and wiring was something I didn't need to or get into with that one. Corventure Dave

I was out of town when I heard the news. I also have known Marty and Bertha since the 70's. And remember when he and Larry opened Corvair Obsolete near the LAX Airport. Was great seeing him and Bertha at the Toss in Palm Springs last year. He's a dear friend and will be truely missed. Corventure Dave

I believe the crossover pipe like 110PG is showing is aftermarket. From my Mom's New 63 Monza to the Late model's we have had in the family, the Rt tubes curved into the muffler end of the pipe. The 1960 and 1961 shop manuals show curved. However I have seen a lot of those straight pipes offered as discount parts in the past. It's sure easier to make them that way! Corventure D

Well... The GP 51 Honda accord battery I have in my Greenbrier decided to fail a load test. Being that it's just 5 years old, I thought it may last longer than that. But twaz not the case. So off to O'Reilly's I go. I knew there was little chance of getting any discount or warranty on my old battery, but one can hope! Sticker Shock! The new GP51 battery cost $182 !!!! I remember

It is my understanding and have used the term for decades...... The adapter that has the oil filter, oilfill tube for "car's", fuel pump and generator - alternator mounting boss... is commonly called the Delcotron Oil fill and Generator Adapter. Or just the Delcotron Adapter. Ar least that is what I learned at the GM Tech Lab a lifetime ago! Corventure Dave

As a CORSA former Concours Master Judge, as I remember and I believe... The quartz clock movement will only be an issue or deduction in two areas of CORSA Concours. One, is that it may bump you out of Stock original class of competition. Two, In the case of another car having the same judged score as yours, but having an original clock, yours would lose a point. It all depends on how OEM

Back to the original question... I have seen tempered for the 1962 model year. Not sure about 1960 and 61. However with FC's 61 - 65, I have only seen tempered. Corventure Dave

As Joel stated. Also, the E clip issue usually locks the transmission in Low, but reverse will still work. Yours sounds like an adjustment issue. At least I would recommend that be the first thing to check. Corventure Dave

I know what your saying Phil. I just finished up fabricating a towing hitch assembly for the back of our new camper trailer. I had already made up the two Recumbent style bike rack that goes on the Brier and other car hitch assemblies. The unit for the trailer is for bicycling at camp sites and trails. Sure these things can be bought outright. But designing and building from scrap and at a cos

Well... I have to say that with my Greenbrier and Rampside..... Once most all the big projects were done, all that's left is maintenance. Like my 64 Brier that I just recently replaced the differential. After well over 150,000 miles, I call that job maintenance. As much as I would like to have a Monza Wagon and a Convertible again......I just don't have room for more Corvair's, and

That's fantastic Phil! After you have driven it a while, check the trans and diff oil's. I resolved a rare issue with the Greenbrier just before the Fan Belt Swap Meet. For others... We're talking Powerglide Automatic Transmission's here. I was slowly using up Dextron, without any visible transmission leaks! As it turned out the issue was the internal stater shaft seal

I totally agree. And then when I finish a project, I also have the satisfaction and gratification that it didn't cost me $80 or more per hour! Corventure Dave

I had the same issue with the Ranpside. Just idling, it would occasionally stumble. Sometimes in stop and go traffic it would just stall. It has an automatic transmission. Otherwise run just fine. I chased down everything it could possibly be. I even replaced the Pertronix 1 UNit and coil with new.... twice! Now let me say I have ran the Pertronix 1 in my Greenbrier for 35 years and it still p
